Mohanty speaks with DigFin‘s Jame DiBiasio about how the MAS is approaching the shift to sustainable finance, the role that data will play, how fintechs are necessary to building new ways of doing things, and how green finance ties into the MAS’s other digital projects.

Finally, Mohanty reveals here that MAS is building a new platform for green-fin data, which he expects to showcase later this year.
